Excellent Wedding Catering!

We recently had the pleasure of working with First Class Catering Service for our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with their outstanding services. From start to finish, they exceeded our expectations and made our special day truly unforgettable.

First and foremost, their team was incredibly easy to work with. They were attentive, responsive, and highly communicative throughout the entire planning process. They understood our vision and helped us bring it to life, alleviating much of the stress that comes with organizing a wedding. Their professionalism and dedication to their craft truly stood out.

One aspect that we particularly appreciated was their willingness to go above and beyond. Not only did they flawlessly execute the catering and bartending services, but they also assisted us in coordinating with our other vendors. This level of support was invaluable, especially considering that we were handling most of the pre-event coordination ourselves. Their expertise and guidance helped everything run smoothly, and we felt reassured knowing that they had our backs.

The highlight of our experience with First Class Catering Service was undoubtedly the amazing custom recipe they created for our wedding. They skillfully combined the tastes of my wife and me, resulting in a culinary masterpiece that our guests couldn't stop raving about. The attention to detail and the artistry they put into every dish was truly remarkable. Moreover, they went the extra mile to accommodate a wide variety of food allergies among our guests. The alterations they made to certain dishes were seamless and still maintained the delicious flavors, ensuring that everyone could enjoy the meal.

Not only did the food taste incredible, but the presentation was also visually stunning. Every plate was meticulously crafted, and the attention to detail was evident in every bite. The servers were attentive, friendly, and professional, making sure that all of our guests felt well taken care of.

Overall, First Class Catering Service deserves nothing less than a five-star rating. Their commitment to excellence, their exceptional communication, and their ability to deliver a truly personalized experience make them stand out from the rest. We wholeheartedly recommend them for any special occasion, as they will undoubtedly exceed your expectations. Thank you, First Class Catering Service, for making our wedding day so magical!

Extremely professional and outstanding food!

Can't say enough good things about Michael and First-Class Catering. They know what they are doing and are extremely professional. A succesful event is truly important to them so they will go out of their way to make that happen even if it means coordinating with other vendors to make sure things are taken care of even outside of catering. Good people, and GREAT food. Highly recommend.

Amazing Food with Amazing Service

I had my wedding early September and was struggling to find a caterer with covid-19 going on. However once I got in contact with first class catering, it was all smooth sailing from there! Michael would be in constant communication with me, and help me every step of the way! We ordered Mexican food for our wedding and I was nervous due to my parents being Mexican. They are very particular about the food being done right. I cannot tell you how AMAZING the food turned out! Our friends always talk about the food when we bring up the wedding. The servers were so nice by bringing us our food first and making sure we were getting to try everything. One woman was even helping me with my wedding dress. I couldn't imagine having better service! Thanks First Class Catering!
